The Kitchen Sink: Mobile Pies, Gourmet Asian Street Grub, and a Friday-Night Food Truck Pod in Temescal

Here we go: your Friday dose of all the East Bay food and drink news that’s fit to print put on the internet:

As Oakland continues to work out its policy toward food trucks, longtime events producer Karen Hester and established food truckster Elizabeth August of Guerilla Grub have set up a weekly “food pod” called Bites on Broadway in the area outside Oakland Tech, at 45th and Broadway. The event, which is set to run every Friday night from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. starting June 10, seeks to expand local food-truck culture and create a neighborhood-y “block party vibe,” according to Hester. “Everywhere in Europe, there’s a town plaza, “ she said, “and we’re trying to recreate that in an urban setting and between three neighborhoods — Temescal, Rockridge, and the Piedmont Avenue area.” Bites on Broadway will feature a rotating group of five or so trucks, including Fist of Flour and Go Streatery, plus live music, lots of grassy space, and bike racks.
